It's been a relatively quiet spring for Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan but he did manage to win the last race of the Melbourne carnival with Solicit. He'll be hoping to keep up the momentum at Rosehill this Saturday when Ryan will tackle the listed Festival Stakes (1500m) with Red Excitment (pictured) and Peace Force.
The Festival is one of three black-type races on the Rosehill program and there's also stakes action at Doomben and Ascot on Saturday.
Either side of that, there's country-cups action at Wodonga and Pakenham in your whirlaway Winning Post.
Our form coverage kicks off with full form guides for Moonee Valley and Canterbury Friday night as well as Wodonga Cup day plus fields, colours and tips for Muswellbrook, Canberra and the Sunshine Coast night meeting.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Rosehill in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Doomben in Brisbane and Ascot in Perth.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Yarra Valley (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Newcastle (NSW editon) and Gold Coast (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.
On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for four more TAB meetings including Pakenham Cup day at Racing.com Park plus fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday and Monday programs.
Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.
Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.
Our readers have their say on page 4, while further back in the book Shane Templeton reminisces, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport and our new column, Number Cruncher, delivers the stats that matter.
Winning Post costs $5 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
